PCR Song

Bio-Rad Laboratories, my employer, produced a video to launch a new instrument back in January. Check out this moving video only a molecular biologist could love.

Kary Mullis, awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1993, invented the basic method of performing polymerase chain reaction (PCR). PCR amplifies DNA without the need for living organism. The technique is used for cloning genes, DNA finger printing, paternity testing, et cetera.

There is even a "making of" video.
